Hello, My name is Tim and I will assist you in finding an answer to your question.
Appreciated very much for your input
OK I am looking it up now
According to the Brother website the error code means something is wrong with the printhead. It says to contact Brother to have the printer repaired.
This only happens when i printed something of the net.
Sorry I got a phone call
So it only happens when you print from the internet and not anything from other programs on your computer?
I thought that 4F may be a different form or size of paper
did you go to the link I sent you?
Are you on DSl
Whats DSI mean?
DSL high speed internet?
Yes i am
Do you have a DSL Filter between the phone jack and the fax modem of the printer?
Yes i have
OK thought this might be the issue
So what do you what me to do?
I am still looking. Just a second please
Do you know how to clean the printhead by removing the print head and cleaning the copper contacts on it?
No i dont never done that before may be with your help may i can
Let me see if I can find some online instructions on how to remove and clean the printhead
This link tells you how to use the control panel of the printer to clean the printheads
i'll try that then i'll get back to you
ok sounds good
Just make sure to post back to this same question
Sorry nothing is happening, followed all instructions it just not doing anything at all
Ok There may be a release mechanism beside the print head that releases it but you might need to remove the ink cartridges first
Ok ill try that
Do you see a lever to remove the printhead
is that the one on the left hand side sort of white lever
yes it might be. Is it beside the printhead?
try flipping the lever and see if the printhead will come out
i think it got a locking mechanism down the bottom also i've got the lever off but its holding it down someway in the bottom.
You may have to slide the printhead out to unlock it but do not break it
I've got it off, just cleaning the head
All done fitted back still the same Unable to Print 4F
Then I believe the printhead is malfunctioning however you might want to contact Brother and tell them it will print fine except on the net and they might be able to tell you something different than what the manual says
have you tried reloading the drivers for the printer to see if it will correct the error message?
However i did spoke to Brother contacrt center did informed me to get on this site, they could not help, but i what else can i do from her, yes i did tried to reload the drive same outcome still nothing.
Sorry I believe the printhead is faulty and needs to be replaced or replace the printer
Why did you rate me bad service when I told you what the problem is with your printer
You did not tell me what the problem with my printer, you had no clue at all, i,ve just taken it into a local printer technician it was simple mistake, he fix it in three minutes, did not cost me anything, and i paid so much to talk to you over the net, which is ridiculous. I've also spend an hour with you chatting which is no help to me at all.
